the church is beautiful there, there are many people on tricycles who will tour you around for maybe 500 pesos. much better to do that as there is alot to see and slow to walk and they will tell you abit about each spot

It was a great tour of the old Walled City of Manila. You come in terms with culture and heritage. How I wish it was fully preserved and restored to bring back the glory of Intramuros.

If this is the number 2 spot to visit in Manila, one can well imagine how downcast is this city. Manila is a lot like Bombay, a sprawling metropolis bursting at the seams and really nothing for the tourist.

Intra-muros is much more interesting than Makati ;) It was part of a Tour and I had such a good time! It worth a visit for sure if you pass by Manila!

We took a Horse and carriage ride with a tourist guide ( 500 pesos ) he was very friendly and he provided good commentary on the subject matter. Just be wary of the children begging a sad fact of life and safeguard your belongings. Worth the visit as this place was flattened by the Americans in 1945 to get rid... More

Most people said Intramuros is a spot that every tourist should visit in Manila. This is an old historic district but streets are dirty and smell terrible. We hired tricycle to visit some main attractions in Intramuros for 2 hours. There are some place we can not visit and in my opinion you need a good tour guide to completely... More

As it is, the ruins of the old fortress are not well maintained. It is a good place to visit though for one who wants to see what history has done and how it has changed through the years.
